I have a fitted Hygena oven with Hygena gas hobs. My ignition now doesn't work and two hobs don't have gas going to them anymore plus the dials are stiff to turn around. Think it needs a majorly good clean, but can I push off the hob top to clean it?? Think I can prise it with a lot of hard effort, but will this break it?? Help as need all four hobs for christmas!!

Why do you need a fitting manual ? Any competent gas engineer should know the contents of BS6172 / BS6891 which both apply to the fitting of domestic gas cookers / hobs. What spares do you need. You can get a spares inventory from Neff. Ensure that it is the correct appliance for the fuel gas you are connecting to. The jet sizes for LPG & Natural Gas are very different.
Glad to Help you!!
Take the knob off, them remove the cover that housed the switches, OK, Now, Look at the switch that is continiusly clicking and it will have two wires goin onto it, remove these wires and just lift the sending unit, and inspect it for water, grease etc ect....clean and dry and put back on and try again it should work, if it does not work, then just get a replacement one, they are not expensive, I just replaced two on my Jenn-Air myself and it cost me $25.00.
Hope this will help!!
Hiya .. this could be due to a number of problems...... has the burner ever worked correctly?
Is the behaviour with only one ring?
1. If not... then it could be that the pipework to the hob itself has not been recuced sufficiently enough in pipe diameter to the regulator far enough back ...
2.The regulator is faulty... in which case it can be replaced... however consider the cost of a new regulator and labour to fix it .. against the cost of a whole new hob... which should include a regulator. Is the hob still under warranty... if so use that .. but you will normally have to provide some proof it has been fitted by someone suitably qualified.
3.the regulator may never have been fitted, which is dangerous and bad practice.
Either of these scenarios... please ensure that you use a suitably qualified gas engineeer... I dont wish to be alarmist... but gas leaks and faulty gas appliances do cause unnecessary deaths...and is a silent killer.
problem with hob is probably water ingress in area of ignition unit - will probably cure itself
oven is a completely separate unit from hob. problem with it is that you have to re-set the clock - you have it on automatic. after power outage, oven clock always has to be reset
